. satellites are in higher orbit. >> nasa is currently studying about 9,000 of these near-earth asteroids. about 1,800 of them are fairly large, and those are of particular interest to us. >> nasa says there's no connection between the two events. it was simply a cosmic coincidence. >>> a sfring of attacks on women -- a string of attacks on women in the mission district may be the work of one man. >> reporter: both attacks happened in the heart of the mission district. both in the early morning hours. and in each case, the attacker's methods were exactly the same. a lone woman walks toward the man and is then grabbed from behind. no robbery, no sexual attack, just a beating with fists. police believe the same man was responsible in both cases. victims describe this hooded suspect. and tonight women say the streets of the mission are dangerous at times. >> i feel when there's not a lot of people around, people will search for people who are just walking alone. i think people can be a target when it's late. >> i try not to leave places late. i call a lift or walk down the middle of the stre
apparently unfounded. nasa is using radar and other technology to study how the asteroid behaves, including its rotation rate, its composition and how it's impacted by the earth's gravity. the idea is to learn enough to prevent cat as it sfroe fee from it threatening in the future. >> we're going to get a lot of information about the asteroid. we're interested in its future motion, whether or not it could come back, whether it threatens the earth. >> reporter: the odds are either this one or another will be back. an asteroid impact the earth about every 120 years on average. it will be visible in the northern hemisphere this evening if you have access to a telescope. for now it's on its way away from the earth out into outer space harmlessly rotating -- or resolving -- excuse me. harmlessly rotating -- i can't even think of the right word. orbiting the sun. harmlessly at least for now, jim. >> casey, thanks very much. we appreciate it. ? or gal lat particular news, a meteor lit up the skies over eastern russia. the blinding light was followed by a series of deafening explosions. listen to t
. bill: according to nasa, 100 tons of meet toors of gravel and dust hit the atmosphere and the earth every single day. the smaller strikes what we saw in russia happen ten times a year. that's new. scientists believe a strike by a meteor six miles across may have been responsible for extinction of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. in case you're wondering on a friday have something to do over the weekend you mentioned the asteroid talking about past several days. they say there is no connection between that and this meteor. we'll talk to scientists throughout the morning. heather: a lot of experts. bill: meantime, six minutes past, the nightmare is finally over. what a slow crawl this was. thousands of passengers cheering the end of a cruise ship horror scene. touching land and kissing it like the pope. the carnival cruise triumph docking last night in mobile after putting what passengers through what they call disgusting conditions. now they say they are just happy to be home. who can blame them. >> i feel great to be off the ship and just being on land and, i get to see my family
thousands of people, mostly from broken glass. nasa says it was the size of a building and moving at 40,000 miles per hour. >> the recent occurrences is probably what makes it interesting. that's what has me up here. >> what do you know of asteroids? >> i know they can be dangerous. >> meanwhile, another asteroid is passing very close to the earth tonight. it is the closest any asteroid has ever gotten to the earth. stargazers came out to get a glimpse of a fuzzy dot on a video screen. 17,000 miles seems like a long distance, but the asteroid is so close to the earth that astronomers say the earth's gravity is bending its path. >> which means it has some potential, although not an immediate potential of hitting the earth. >> a lot of astronomical activity in the past 24 hours, but astronomers hearsay it is just a -- here say it is a wonderful coincidence. reporting live from the space and science center in oakland, a alan wang, abc news. >> they are so close together. it is odd. people have been tweeting about it. this from texas girl erin who said, just saw it from market and fifth. an

there. go look it the web site on nasa. you can see every landing site. if anybody does not believe we ever went to the moon, does go look at that. [laughter] >> charlie, it's funny. i met you in texas. i did not know this but you were the guy who had some very famous words as apollo 11 was going through its trials and tribulations. talk about that. you are part of history for that. >> i was very fortunate to have been involved in five of the nine missions we sent to the moon. i started with apollo 10. it was not designed to land. i helped develop the procedures to activate the lunar module. i was in mission control when i started talking to them when they started the descent. that was a dress rehearsal for apollo 11. the first time we going to attempt the landing on the moon. neil armstrong asked me to do the same job for them on apollo 11. two months, we had to get ready. we modified the procedure somewhat. then we were ready to go. so i was in mission control of the dissent. as we started down, things started coming unglued we have computer problems. we had a trajectory problem take
is not gay. >> according to nasa, a 130,000 ton asteroid is expected to narrowly hit missing earth this friday. the science dude and wondered if global warming had anything to do with it. >> our science guy, talk about something else falling from the sky, and that is an asteroid. what is coming our way? is this because of global warming or some occasion? >> it is the word meteorology and the word meteor come from the same root. >> oh like you know. >> how do we know global warming isn't at fault? >> come on, deborah. she is a space cadet. maybe she was searching for words. >> you know i think we should blame bush or cheney or alec baldwin. >> i like all of them, actually. >> we bought this so much now. now it just comes right off the lips. we blame everything so this makes sense. >> it is like how you know somebody is uninterruptiing. they start talking -- uninteresting. they start talking about the weather and now everybody adds their two cents. must be global warming or so much for global warning. >> it is like i am going to add this boring thing, this observation that makes it m
: how much warning do we get? >> nasa tracks these things. they're able to track 90% of the asteroids that could come close to us. but in this case, there was really no warning. people don't know what's going on. >> brian: i remember in the video game, you could shoot an asteroid out of the sky. i know in armageddon, in the movies, bruce willis and ben affleck were able to -- who else was in that? were able to stop it. is that what we're going to have to do at some point? >> nasa does track these things and they have the capability to stop them before they come close to earth. >> brian: lasers? >> all sorts of things. >> steve: there has been a nasa plan to send some sort of ship onto an asteroid, but once again, the asteroid that's going to come between us and some of our satellites later today, that's going to be far away, right? >> it's relatively close. the closest they've come in centuries. so that's why people are a little nervous. but no, it's not going to hit us. >> alisyn: let us know if there is ever one coming, all right? >> brian: even if we're in sports or in an interview

crashing to earth. tonight we learned from nasa it was traveling at 46,000 miles per hour when it crashed. now no, sirly as fast -- now nearly as fast people on the internet are trying to make money on their finds. >> reporter: the meteor exploded in midair. the force of 30 hiroshima bombs. it scattered glass across the region and scattering fragments worth big money for anyone who finds them. tonight scientists have confirmed the first fragments found near this hole in a frozen lake where a big chunk landed. media says it is worth 100 to 100,000 depending on size. already they are showing up on ebay. this one is going for $4090. this one is going -- $490 and this one under a thousand. notice how they don't look anything alike? >> that's it right there? >> reporter: he found a tiny rock he thinks is part of the meteor. he found it on the frozen lake. the hole has become something of a tourist attraction. people streaming in to see it for themselves. more conspiracy folks have suggested this is an american rocket attack or an alien space invasion. but others have found a more divine interp
that massive meteor that came crashing to earth. tonight we learned from nasa it was traveling at 46,000 miles per hour when it crashed. now no, sirly as fast -- now nearly as fast people on the internet are trying to make money on their finds. >> reporter: the meteor exploded in midair. the force of 30 hiroshima bombs. it scattered glass across the region and scattering fragments worth big money for anyone who finds them. tonight scientists have confirmed the first fragments found near this hole in a frozen lake where a big chunk landed. media says it is worth 100 to 100,000 depending on size. already they are showing up on ebay. this one is going for $4090. this one is going -- $490 and this one under a thousand. notice how they don't look anything alike? >> that's it right there? >> reporter: he found a tiny rock he thinks is part of the meteor. he found it on the frozen lake. the hole has become something of a tourist attraction. people streaming in to see it for themselves. more conspiracy folks have suggested this is an american rocket attack or an alien space invasion. but others have f
scientists can see cosmic rocks coming our way, doing something about it is the tricky part. in theory, nasa would be able to knock a threatening incoming asteroid off orbit so it misses earth. but there's very little precedent for that. the only thing that comes close was a 2005 mission where nasa steered a probe about the size of a coffee table into an oncoming docket, a project known as -- comet, a prooj knoject kn "deep comet." >> with the they're tess should work fine, certainly there would be details in launching a massive object into space, making sure we guide it correctly so it will hit the right spot on the asteroid to knock it appropriately off-course. >> reporter: scientists say these events, the meteor in russia and the asteroid's close call, should be a wake-up call. if the asteroid instead of missing earth had impacted, say, washington, d.c., it would have been devastating. >> if it's dense enough and could hit the earth intact, the impact crater itself would not be that big. but the effects from the shockwave and the heat from impact would be enough to basically wipe out ever
? >> nasa has a program to search for these objects and we've done a good job at finding the large ones. we put the priority on finding the large one first. the one that hit on friday was really a tiny asteroid, pretty small. >> anna: it's wild that this tiny one caused this much damage. you say mostly what you're looking for are the ones that are 400 feet in size and up, right? >> yes. a city block and larger. those are ones that would reach the surface. the one that hit over russia was broken up by the atmosphere. so there was only the damage from the shock wave. the larger ones, if they reach the surface in one piece, can cause great damage. >> peter: when you talk about the larger ones, what are we talking about? something as big as a kilometer? do those exist? >> oh, yes. oh, yes. and that's about a half mile. nasa has done a good job of finding 95% of those ones. the idea is to find them many, many years before they could hit the earth and calculate when and where the hazard is and if there is a hazard sometime in the future, then we could possibly do something about it. >> steve: now
